This museum features two airplane hangars full of planes and has hands-on activities for visitors.
The Aviation Museum of Kentucky is right next door to The Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, Kentucky. Two large airplane hangars are filled with all kinds of airplanes with signage posted, providing detailed descriptions. You will also see flight suits, a display about women aviators, and get to try out a flight simulator. During your visit, you will learn about the science and remarkable history of flight.
Come and see the cockpits up close and personal. Some even allow guests to climb in, such as a Cessna 150 and a Bell helicopter. One of the Blue Angel airplanes is also on display here. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday from 1 pm - 5 pm. There is plenty of parking available for guests, and a visit to the gift shop is a must before you leave. Enjoy discovering the world of flight at this museum the next time you're in Kentucky.
